“Great Winter Warmer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The atmosphere in this restaurant is warm and welcoming. Busy and noisy in a good way, the service was prompt and friendly. We had three courses including a shared dessert all of which were very good. The wine list has a good selection of wines to match the menu. A very good experience for a family dinner where it is not easy to please everyone. Well done Ellina.

“Wonderful dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

I have been to Ellina many times. Whether at the bar or at a table, the food is delicious, well-prepared and beautiful. Jill, the sommelier, makes it even more fabulous with her special wine recommendations and her passion for the subject! Last week I brought my parents visiting from France. Attentive and friendly service from the whole team made our dinner memorable. Thank you.
AND don't miss their off season prix fixe!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Was totally surprised by the quality of the food. Had to go back twice! The bruschetta with artichoke heart, egg, and creamy black truffle sauce is one of the best dishes I have ever tasted in my life! Crispy calamari in oriental sauce was outstanding. Lamb chops and NY steak were prepared perfectly. Lemon basil martini is a winner! Great wine list. Plus, hey had a prix fixe deal that was a real bargain. Go, Go, Go!

“Good food and service non pretentious place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Very good fresh, well cooked food. The chef, who had worked under the previous chef does an excellent job at selecting fresh produce and serving an excellent fare. Unlike a lot of the menus in Aspen, you do not need help to understand and select from the menu. It is simple and good. Fish served are whole be it sea bass or grouper. Not these pre prepared skinny fillets you often find. Chicken is moist. Service is attentive and excellent without being iverwhelming. A good place.
